Understanding Community and Separate Property in Texas

As a community property state, Texas mandates that all property and debts acquired during a marriage must be equitably divided upon divorce. This includes businesses or professional practices developed during the marriage, which are subject to valuation and division.

Separate property, conversely, comprises assets brought into the marriage by an individual. This includes businesses established pre-marriage or with non-marital funds. Nonetheless, these businesses may still have elements of community property, such as:

However, it will have community property components that will need to be valued and accounted for, such as the following:

  • Joint investments or expansions in the business
  • Value appreciation due to shared financial contributions
  • Contributions of each spouse towards the business

Valuing a Business in Divorce Proceedings

Proper valuation is essential when dividing a business in divorce, ensuring the business owner can maintain operations post-divorce while providing fair financial compensation to the non-owner spouse. This process often involves professional business appraisers to evaluate goodwill and other intangible assets.
